TWDTW #5: Heartbleed, Settings, User Backups
This week we’ve been dealing with the Heartbleed issue, but more positively have also shipped (for internal, but live testing) updates to user settings and a new pro feature: real-time backup of your bins.
Heartbleed, no more
This, from xkcd, does a good job of explaining the issue:
JS Bin settings & preferences
We’re hoping to release this to you all next week.
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working on a new part of JS Bin called Jobsworth. This is a task manager that communicates using zeromq and contrary to it’s name, will do our bidding. Initially backing up all my new bins to Dropbox in real-time (and we intend to add other services, like SkyDrive, Drive, etc).
The format of the file saved in which the bins are saved is a single HTML file that includes the full source of the bin, including pre-processor’s source, which acts as an API for JS Bin importing too #609.
If you’ve not seen the oscar winning Gravity, well, you should, but this is Gravity for those of you without much time on your hands - enjoy!
❤️ Love JS Bin?
